into the field. so qatar, united arab emirates, saudi arabia, there are many donors. china is starting to donate, many into education for the first time. korea is coming in. so yes, i would like america to do more and i would like the rest of the west to do more but there are many potential donors in the future. and they begin to see that if you back a country that is educating its children, you've got a skilled workforce as well as having met the moral requirements that every child should have opportunities. >> woodruff: how much does this depend on the persuasive powers of someone who's internationally known, like, if you are gordon brown and how much-- and you are-- the force of your personality? >> well, i wish i could be more successful. but the truth is that i know from being a leader in recent years, that if there is not public pressure, and if there is not a demand from the rest of the world, then there are other priorities that you're going to address. we've got to persuade these leaders, there is no country in the poorer parts of the world will ever be a rich country, will ever be a hi

gas houses from qatar in particular. russian gas remains extremely important. it is still 1/3 of volume. europe is in economic trouble. asia's gas pricing is more buoyant. the pricing has recovered markedly in the last year or so. the trends you mention are there. but they are still baby steps. so that mutual dependence, the mad factor as we just mentioned is very much there. >> thank you very much for your time today. we're back in just a couple of minutes. >> welcome back to "the pulse" live on bloomberg television and also streaming on the ipad and >> botox maker allergan is bid g to bust a takeover from valleant. let's get details on what happens next. let's talk about poison pills. >> wonderful term in any pharmaceutical takeover. of course we don't see them very much. it is a bit of an old-fashioned thing. makes you think of past takeover booms. what is going on here is that allergan do not want to be taken over or at least so they say by this combination of valleant pharmaceuticals and the hedge fund investor bibill ackman. they have produced this plan

[laughter] why not give qatar can do it. recently doug and i had opportunity to go to baghdad is but don't laugh, for a counterterrorism conference. when i got back i was asked by somebody, in a word how were things in baghdad? good, i said. good? my friend said one word, i would like, okay. keywords. not good. how would i know that? you're right, i probably wouldn't have it was so quiet. security was everywhere. multiple checkpoints every three feet practically come especially around the zone to get around. and nothing was said in the two and half days of the conference or, i was there about nine days, well, things are set privately but you would have them there was a terrorist war going on, that there probably have been already fighting around fallujah and in anbar. not a word was said but if you'd asked me after this conference what their strategy is, i wouldn't have known. i didn't know there'd been a huge terrorist incident, a bombing, intelligent indo from, say many now saying are you safe? are you all right? ar

in the middle east. my question as, do you think that they mentioned qatar, saudi, do you think the people will shape the future of the muslim brotherhood. >> is megaforce is to it gives up writings the demographic realities of the region. any other information revolution. so you have a young dynamic under employing a net increase in the well-informed society throughout the region. they strive stores chain and an issue for every political social move in mls at the brotherhood. will mention that one point or maybe hussein is thought that the younger generation in the brotherhood perhaps becoming more inclined towards using violence or whatever. there's a gap between the elders and the younger generation. sometimes the younger generation christ ideologically has more in common with each other than they do with the elders in family-run organization. this has been true at the brotherhood and i think that these are major underlying forces that are going to continue to drive change along with i agree with what my colleagues have said about structural forces number which will determine coming you

as expanding the qatar's and bosch car broadcasting and so on. and the last point, we have to understand we have reentered a world, which too many people in this city not permanently had been put to bed and that is we are now dealing with denied areas. there are places with extraordinarily difficult to get information. where areas are denied, where it is difficult to get information and the internet doesn't solve everything despite the mantra of some people, you need real expertise. you need to spend the time gathering names. i was privileged to work in the research department and liberty and i can tell you how much time it took wendy's were denied areas to find things. but these are the only kind of broadcast that make sense. you cannot trump that. you cannot short-circuit that by assuming you can get it all off the internet. now, that is going to require us, not only to restore a research function, which we can't slough off to universities. it just simply isn't possible. but it is critically important to overcome one of our leaders. besides looking at my picturesque operations becoming se
of direct discussions with representatives of the taliban leadership in germany and qatar over 2010 through 2012 and which of course al qaeda and the taliban's relationships with a central question. and i could say the taliban never questioned whether al qaeda had carried out 9/11 or whether 9/11 was the recent united date fate of afghanistan. they said they are punishing us for some and we did do. it was quite a different argument. you can argue whether that's an active statement on their part or not. but they didn't contest the reality of what had happened. iraq is a different question which had nothing to do with 9/11. we are not going to talk about that here tonight however. >> i hope the parallel a feudal europe isn't that far-fetched, but inspiration for a lot of my theoretical argumentation. and this book on the scholar who influenced my work as well as barney's work with the head of the sociology department here at columbia for many years. charles tilly who described across as a stable nation in europe as many as nine did many, many times, which involved engagement on the part of st

for energy. the top is russian gas reserves followed by iran, qatar, and the united states on down. the russian gas supply, how big is that in the world market, the russian supply? .uest: they are the big player they supply in europe and there are small quantities that should be going east to china and that is actually something under discussion this week, and then next month vladimir putin will go to china. they are one of the major gas suppliers. years, you'vecent all probably heard about the natural gas boom in the u.s.. in the u.s. is now producing as much gas as russia. that is true, but it is also pretty much all for domestic consumption. the u.s. may start exporting gas to other markets in a few years time, other than mexico and some transfers to canada, a few out of alaska, it is not a big exporter at this point. share of russia's natural gas exports by destination, this is for 2012. guest: germany is the big single buyer. the smaller european countries are quite vulnerable as well. dependentem are 100% on russian gas. you look at the case of the baltic states, belarus. ukr

by qatar. i do want to emphasize what has already been approved is very substantial in volume. in regard to your second question, no doubt about it. american companies, but also, of course international companies that operate in the united states is essentially where all of the experience lies today in terms of major production from shales. they are very active, american companies. ron, the majors, exon, chev but also the major independents are extremely active in shales around the world, bringing their, applying their knowledge to those shales. some of those shales have proved to be more difficult than was anticipated. but nevertheless, i think we will see a lot of production. that itself will change the geography of supply and ha vve a major impact on global markets. >> you are currently in conversations with your european colleagues, ng-7 colleagues, have the resistance to exploiting those shales been reduced as a result of concerns about the certainty of russian supply? >> well, just to clarify, we will have a meeting of g-7 energy ministers in rome week after next as called for by t

with us, heck, we'll buy you a luxurious office, complex, in qatar. we may even release some of your murdering thugs that we have confined. heck, we'll do that, we'll release some of them anyway. just to show our good faith. heck, we'll do whatever, if you'll just sit down and talk with us. there is no radical islamist in e world that respects that kind of talk from an american leader. from any leader. oh, please, we beg you, please sit down and talk with us. they don't respect that. that projects weakness to them. there's one thing they respect and that is power, when used appropriately. they may hate it, they may despise the way it's used but they respect power when it's used effectively. and this administration has not done that at all. go back to iraq, the bush administration basically had set up a status of forces agreement by the end of 2008. most of the terms were agreed to. the bush administration, many of us believe, could have gone ahead and finished, had that signed before president obama took office. but as i understand it, it was considered a generous outreach by george
